The Adult Rowing League (ARL) crews meet once a week on weekday evenings in June and July.
Register as a team, with friends, or on your own to practice on Tuesday OR Wednesday OR Thursday nights. Based on your preference, we’ll assign you to a crew, a boat and coaches. Four weekly practices are held starting in June (Tuesdays or Wednesdays or Thursdays at 6:00pm). After all that hard work on the water, everyone heads out to get to know their crew and some of the other teams.
In July, all crews meet on Thursday evenings (6:00pm) for races – some 200 rowers! Races are 800m in length, running in front of the boathouse from Parliament Hill to the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge. An announcer calls the races, the BBQ is on and the bar is open.
